NX X NXOpen DLL fails with 'Assembly not been compiled with a NX Resource Bundle'

NX Open



Signing or executing a NXOpen .NET DLL/EXE may fail in NX12 if the Visual
Studio project had been upgraded from previous VS and NX versions.

The error encountered then might state:

>signdotnet projectname.dll
Checking for the presence of DotNet Author License
Problem found with NX resource in assembly projectname.dll
Assembly has not been compiled with an NX resource bundle
Signature is not valid


The string block definition in "%UGII_BASE_DIR%\UGOPEN\NXSigningResource.res"
changed between NX11 and NX12 from "NXAUTHBLOCK" to "NXAUTHBLKNT".

This change was necessary and justified by fixing a Problem Report to ensure
executables were being signed by the correct corresponding signing utility.

Fixed NX12

So users should ensure to use the correct "NXSigningResource.res" file for the
NX release target and set the Visual Studio build action property for this
file to "Embedded Resource" as documented.
